The Cagle Post: Protecting The 7th Floor

Ever since four brave Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya two years ago, many questions have been raised about what then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew before, during, and after the fact. A shocking article by former CBS News investigative reporter Sheryl Attkisson published in The Daily Signal sheds light on what Hillary Clinton and her protectors did in the days and weeks after the attack. As someone who has investigated the Clintons for years, this type of cover up is nothing new and unfortunately expected. It’s in the Clinton playbook – obstruct and cover-up.

According to Attkisson’s reporting, “Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to ‘separate’ damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.” The story is based on an interview with Raymond Maxwell, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State who came forward with new details. For example, an office manager told Maxwell to “go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the ‘seventh floor’ in a bad light” – seventh floor was a code word for Hillary Clinton and her group of “principal advisors.”

It is no surprise that leading this clandestine effort was none other than Clinton’s Chief of Staff and confidant Cheryl Mills and Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. Both have extensive history with Hillary Clinton, and Cheryl Mills worked in the Clinton Administration during the myriad of scandals. Hillary wanted to keep whatever happened the night of September 11, 2012 in Libya under wraps that is why she tapped her most trusted aides to do her dirty work. Somewhere H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman would be proud.

The Denver Post: Ted Olson argues Citizens United case in Denver court

A conservative group's push to air a documentary aimed at Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Democrats met resistance in federal court Tuesday, as a judge pushed back against Citizens United's effort to avoid campaign disclosure laws.

U.S. District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson expressed skepticism as he pressed Citizens United attorney Ted Olson, the former U.S. Solicitor General, on his argument that the nonprofit political organization deserved the same free-speech protections afforded to newspapers and television stations.

Citizens United asked the court to void a decision from the Colorado Secretary of State's office that required the group to disclose its donors and label the film "Rocky Mountain Heist" as an electioneering communication under state law. The group contends it is a legitimate media source.

Breitbart: A Politicized Justice Department

The latest twist to the ever-evolving IRS political targeting scandal, which began over a year ago now, would have been even bigger news this week were it not for the ISIS terrorist threat.

A top spokesman for Attorney General Eric Holder made a fatal error on Tuesday: Holder’s spokesman, Brian Fallon, mistakenly called House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s office in search of “some help leaking information about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups."

This devastating revelation is just further proof that nothing about Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s investigation into IRS targeting is legitimate, and, as is the case with this current administration as a whole, partisan politics reign supreme.

Newsmax: Citizens United's Bossie: Alan Simpson 'Has to Get His Facts' Right

Former Sen. Alan Simpson's swipe at Sen. Ted Cruz about Cruz's comment that political satire on shows like "Saturday Night Live" may become illegal if a campaign finance amendment is passed, shows that Simpson is detached from reality, says David Bossie, president of Citizens United.

"It just goes to show you that Alan Simpson's completely out to lunch," Bossie said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Alan has been out of the Senate a long time and he really, I don't think, is following at all what's going on in reality."

Fox News: FEC moves to strip ‘unconstitutional’ election spending rules after 4-year delay

After dragging its feet for four years, the federal agency that regulates campaign spending is finally moving to conform with a landmark Supreme Court decision that dramatically loosened election spending rules.

The leaders of the Federal Election Commission announced the agreement on Thursday. It marks the apparent end of a protracted deadlock on the panel over how to comply with the controversial 2010 Citizens United ruling, which lifted restrictions on corporate and union spending in elections.

The agreement also gets the FEC on the same page with the more recent McCutcheon decision, which overturned aggregate contribution limits for donors.

Bossie: “The First Amendment Is Preserved Yet Again”

Washington, DC -- Citizens United President David N. Bossie released the following statement following the defeat of S.J. Res. 19, a proposed constitutional amendment by Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico that would have overturned the landmark Supreme Court case Citizens United v. FEC.

“The First Amendment is preserved yet again, ensuring all Americans are able to exercise their right of free political speech,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “As the nation mourns the thirteenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and with ISIS on the march, Senate Democrats continue their losing battle in stripping away the rights for all Americans to participate in the electoral process. The Supreme Court ruled nearly five years ago in Citizens United v. FEC that this type of incumbency power grab cannot and will not stand. Citizens United appreciates all the U.S. Senators who stood up to preserve the First Amendment today, as Harry Reid and his Democrat colleagues voted to tamper with our Constitutional rights.”


Cagle.com: President Obama On The Wrong Side Of History

President Obama and his administration are fond of bragging that they believe themselves to be on the “right side of history.”

Strangely, what Obama seems to think the right side of history is and what actual history proves, are two very different things. Time and again, in his quest to be on the right side of history, Obama has come down on the wrong side of human liberty and dignity.

“I think history will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt that we were on the right side of history,”he said at a February 4, 2011 press conference.

Citizens United Vote Alert On The Udall Amendment Against Citizens United

Citizens United urges all U.S. Senators to oppose S.J. Res. 19, a proposed constitutional amendment by Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico, as well as any other attempts to limit the free speech of American citizens.

Vote Alert- SJ. RES. 19 by CitizensUnited


Breitbart: Harry Reid's Senate Is Focused On Citizens United While The World Is Burning

It has been a long, hot summer here in America and abroad. ISIS is on the march and has brutally beheaded two American journalists. The threat is so large that you even have liberal United States Senators like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Al Franken (D-MN) openly questioning President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.

The last time the threat to the homeland was this grave was in the aftermath of September 11th. So, what is first on the policy agenda for the United States Senate after a month-long recess? Developing a response to ISIS? Or even a policy on the Russian advances in the Ukraine? No! Reid has his sights on gutting the First Amendment and overturning the landmark Citizens United Supreme Court decision.

This folly known as S.J. Res. 19, introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), is just another example of how out-of-touch the Democrat-controlled United States Senate is and why Congress, according to the Real Clear Politics average, is at nearly a 80 percent disapproval rating. Harry Reid and the Democrat Caucus that he leads are completely consumed by a political agenda that attacks Citizens United. Why? Because the Citizens United decision gives a powerful voice to the opposition and makes it easier to participate in the process -- a scary thought for liberal incumbents.
